On September 28, 2016, California Governor Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 918 into law, adding Section 4041 to the Civil Code, relating to common interest developments.

Effective January 1, 2017, this new law requires homeowners to provide annual written notice to their community association of all the following:

  1. The Primary mailing address to which notices from the association are to be delivered.
  2. A Secondary mailing address, if any, to which notices from the association are to be delivered.
  3. The name and address of the owner’s legal representative, if any, including any person with power of attorney or other person who can be contacted in the event of the owner’s extended absence from the separate interest.
  4. Whether the separate interest is owner-occupied, is rented out, if the parcel is developed but vacant, or if the parcel is undeveloped land.

Full details of the bill can be found at the California Legislative Information website.
